How We Support Rough Sleepers

How We Support Rough Sleepers

 Mon, September 21, 2020

At Castlehaven we are committed to helping Camden’s homeless community, which in turn helps local residents. We are in regular contact with local groups to assist rough sleepers in finding accommodation alongside other forms of support. These organsations include Routes off The Streets, The Outside LGBTIQ+ Project, Community Safety and MET Police.

The problem of food insecurity is increasing in Camden, and we have provided nutritious food parcels to thousands of individuals, including local homeless people through our C-19 Emergency Foodbank. The parcels include vegetables and fruits grown in our Community Park.

Homeless individuals often attend our Wednesday volunteer sessions in the park, aiding our gardening team who do a brilliant job maintaining Camden Town’s largest green space. These individuals are encouraged to engage with organisations such as Routes off the Streets, who help people find accommodation and move on from rough sleeping in our open spaces, local streets and estates.

How can you give and receive help? 

We highly recommend you download the Camden Street Safe Reporting app. Camden Routes off The Streets uses information provided by the public via this app to assist rough sleepers in the borough. 

If you have witnessed or seen any of the following listed items near or around your home, you can report these via the Clean Camden app. Camden Council will then have a duty to clean these away as soon as possible:

Fly Tipping

Abandoned Vehicle

Dead Animal

Dog Fouling

Drug Paraphernalia

Graffiti

Human Bodily Waste

Litter

Oil/Chemical Spillage

Overflowing Dog Bin

Overflowing Litter Bin

Castlehaven will continue to assist local rough sleepers that approach us for help. If you see a homeless person on our site that needs support, please contact us on 020 7485 3386 (Mon-Fri 9.30am-5.30pm) or Routes Off The Streets via the app above. Thank you for your cooperation.
